If you’re among the vast majority of Americans who have a serious sweet tooth, you’re in good company. The nature of food addiction, more specifically, sugar addiction, has been studied and shown to be extremely common and as intense as addictions to opiates like cocaine and heroin.
Part of the reason it’s so hard to kick the habit is that over time, our brains actually become addicted to the natural opioids that are triggered by sugar consumption. Like with drugs, a diet loaded with sugar can generate excessive reward signals in the brain which can override self-control and lead to addiction. In fact, researchers at Princeton University report that sugar-loving mice demonstrate all three criteria of addiction: increased intake, withdrawal, and cravings that lead to relapse. Yowza.
So, how do you break the cycle without going into rehab?
The good news — it’s possible, and I’m going to show you how.
Confession time: My name is Kristen, and I’m a recovering sugar addict…
In my early days, I’d reach for sugar throughout the day – just because. After meals, in between meals, and everywhere in between. When I finally realized how horrible it made me feel (and look – let’s be honest), I knew I had to do something to reign this addiction in, so I would be in control of my sugar cravings — and not the other way around.
So I did what any typical self-help junkie does — buckled down and asked Dr. Google for help.
And here’s what I found…
A lot of information. I was overwhelmed, and truth be told — deflated at the possibility that I’d never kick my sugar cravings.
I began to wade through the information — little by little, trying one thing after another. Some techniques worked great — others, not so much.
Long story short, after oodles of trial and correction, I cracked the code to kicking my sugar addiction, and I was so excited to share it with the world.
The “Kick Sugar Now” Challenge
I call it “Kick Sugar Now”. Thanks to this super easy technique to kick sugar addiction, in less than a week, I can give my body a gentle kick start that leaves me more focused, a few pounds lighter, and feeling like I can conquer the world.
Using the concepts I had learned and experienced in weight loss and cleanse programs, I incorporated the things that made me kick my sugar addiction (and lose weight in the process) and feel amazing and I left out the ones that made me miserable.
Once I discovered this, I decided I HAVE to know if this only works for me or if I have come up with something that can potentially work for hundreds or thousands of people? So I packaged this technique to kick sugar addiction into an easy-to-follow format and had people test it.
And you know what? It worked beyond my wildest dreams!
Let me share some results:
- Patty lost 8 pounds and 9 inches, started sleeping better, and noticed a huge improvement in her mental clarity and focus.
- Within the very first day, Kittie felt lighter, and over the next 3 weeks, she lost 8 pounds, gained more energy, and her love of life completely rebounded.
- Jen ditched her life-long addiction to sugar, felt leaner, became incredibly productive, started sleeping better, and learned how to successfully navigate her emotional eating.
These women learned the key to melting fat, kicking cravings, and boosting their energy, was simply ditching sugar for a period of time, which was robbing them of their energy and vitality.
Once they discovered how great this simple technique made them feel, they wanted to go deeper and give their lifestyle and metabolism a total reboot — but more on that later.
Ok, so now that you’ve seen what “Kick Sugar Now” can do for women like you, you’re wondering:
“How can I do this myself? Do I need to stop eating all of the foods I love?”
Nope! It’s really quite easy and takes just a little bit of planning and preparation to implement and get you on your way to feeling amazing again in less than a week.
You’ll feel lighter and leaner, less foggy, and more in control of your cravings and your life.
It’s worked for me, it’s worked for hundreds of other busy women, and it can work for you!
